Slam Dunk Festival has revealed the latest additions to their 2018 line-up, including co-headliners Good Charlotte.
Other artists revealed during the announcement, which debuted on Radio 1 on Sunday night, include PVRIS, Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, Creeper, Thursday, Every Time I Die, Knuckle Puck, Real Friends and Crown the Empire.
They join several other artists who have already been announced as part of next year’s line-up.
We’re super excited about the festival as it’s shaping up to be yet another incredible line-up but, if you’re still making up your mind about Slam Dunk-ing in 2018, check out our guide for getting to know all the bands announced so far!
Good Charlotte first made their mark back in the early ’00s with pop-rock bangers like ‘Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous‘ and ‘Girls & Boys‘, but then seemed to vanish into thin air – much to the dismay of our teenage hearts! Thankfully, they made their comeback in 2015 and have since released a brand new album, a couple of awesome singles, and toured the world. We can’t wait to see the Madden brothers and co. take to the stage as the massive co-headliners for Slam Dunk Festival 2018.
Jimmy Eat World
Jimmy Eat World have been pretty busy over the past couple of years, releasing new album Integrity Blues in 2016 and taking it to stages across the world ever since – including our very own Reading & Leeds Festival this summer. Of course the new material is pretty great but, if we’re honest, we’re mostly hyped about seeing our most beloved Jimmy Eat World tunes live as they co-headline the festival – cue ‘The Middle‘!
Remember when PVRIS dropped their debut album White Noise in 2014 and everyone lost their freakin’ minds? And remember when they suddenly abandoned the hype and went radio silent? And then remember when they announced All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell earlier this year and played a sold-out pre-release show in London and everyone lost their freakin’ minds all over again? Well, be prepared for more PVRIS mania as they gear up for a huge performance at next year’s festival.
Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes
Let’s hope the venues hosting this year’s Slam Dunk Festivals – especially the brand new site for Slam Dunk South – are made of strong stuff, because if there’s anyone out there who can tear them down, it’s Frank Cater. He and his Rattlesnakes released Modern Ruin in January, but took a break from touring the album earlier this year so Carter could focus on his own mental health. We’re wishing them all well and, of course, hoping they’re back on top form in time for Slam Dunk.
